Title: 2 - Administration and Personnel

Chapter: 38 - In-Home Support Services Public Authority

Section: 50 - Public Authority Employment Functions


A.  The Public Authority shall be deemed to be the employer of record of IHSS providers within the meaning of Chapter 10 (commencing with section 3500) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code, commonly known as the Meyers-Milias-Brown Act. Nothing in these enumerated powers shall be construed to limit or interfere with the rights of IHSS recipients to hire, fire, with or without cause, and supervise the work of any person providing services to them.

B.  The Public Authority shall have no authority or jurisdiction to regulate, control, or limit the rights and responsibilities of recipients of IHSS to hire, fire, or supervise providers. The right to supervise includes, but is not limited to, the right to determine matters such as work schedules, tasks and duties, assignments and direction of work, methods and standards of care and conduct, discipline, provisions for safety and security, control of premises, any in-home living or other accommodations, and final resolution of concerns, problems, and complaints relating to such supervision. Recipients retain such rights and responsibilities independent of the Authority, just as they held such rights and responsibilities independent of the County prior to the formation of the Public Authority.
